SORTA "Finds" $7.9 Mill In Bus Cushions

The Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority has uncovered millions of dollars in surplus cash, some of which it plans to use to buy new buses next year for the Metro bus system.

A total of $7.9 million in cash that wasn't designated for any specific purpose was discovered during a yearlong review of the transit authority's balance sheet, according to SORTA Chair Kreg Keesee.
